Sushi – ADOPTED :)

VERY NICE – LOTS OF ENERGY – FETCHES AND LOVES TOYS – NO SMALL KIDS – CHI MIX

Sushi is a 12lb, 5 year old minpin chihuahua mix. His foster dad writes fondly of him and says, “Sushi is such a darling sweetie! He loves loves loves to give so many kisses and to sit on your chest or lap as you watch TV. He’s very high energy and can run laps around just about anyone. He loves fetching balls and chewing all the fluff off tennis balls. Because of the rash he gets on his neck he must wear a harness rather than a collar.” Sushi is not great with his recall and so it is preferable that he be walked on leash or stay in fenced parks only. While Sushi is generally good with children, it is not recommended that he live with small children as he can nip when he gets cranky and so he needs children old enough to know how to read his body language and when to back off.  —Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog.

COGNAC – nice boy, would be nice if he and Zorro could be adopted together

WAS SURRENDERED WITH ZORRO – WOULD BE NICE IF THEY COULD BE ADOPTED TOGETHER – CUDDLY – GOOFY, LOVES WALKS AND CAR RIDES

Cognac is a 5.5 year old male Miniature Pinscher who weighs just over 8kg. He loves to sleep in the blankets and cuddle. He has spent most of his life with his pal Zorro and for this reason it is preferable that Cognac and Zorro be adopted together.
Cognac was surrendered by his owner due to allergies. He loves going on vigorous walks and is good on leash. He also loves going for car rides. He is especially mild mannered and gentle. His foster Mom says “He is a very affectionate coddler who likes to curl up beside you or on your lap. He’ll happily sleep with you at night. Although shy at first, he’ll quickly warm up to you. He would do well in a family where someone is home much of the time. He is happy with other dogs and would be like to be back with his former buddy. He gets along well with his foster family’s dogs and plays with them. He would be best with a companion dog. He’ll tolerate cats, ‘though he’ll hassle them a bit sometimes, just for fun. He loves his walks and rides well in the car. He especially loves to be outside in a fenced garden. He’s a very “easy care” dog. He’ll make a great friend.” —Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.

Zorro – sweet Dashie mix – would be nice if he could be adopted with his buddy Cognac

WOULD BE NICE TO PLACE ZORRO AND COGNAC TOGETHER, AS THEY ARE BUDDIES – SNUGGLY – PROTECTIVE

With his floppy ears and wiggly body, we’re pretty sure Zorro is a dachshund minpin mix! Zorro has spent most of his life with his pal Cognac, and for this reason it would be preferable if Zorro and Cognac could be adopted together. Zorro was surrendered by his owner due to allergies, but they were very sad to give him up. He loves to play and his tail whips eagerly with excitement when there is a squeaky toy around. Zorro likes to sleep in bed under the covers and loves snuggling up and cuddling. Like your typical Dashie, he can be protective and reactive particularly around strangers when they approach his space or territory (like the car). —Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog.

Enzo – ready to meet you!

Enzo  is a cute little man, about 4 years old, a Chihuahua cross. He is a sweet loving little dog who bonds very closely with his human and is Ok left alone (but he’s with other dogs in his foster home). He walks quite nicely on the lead and is housetrained. He barks  appropriately at  new events but doesn’t sit and yap. He is a nice little guy,  would prefer  to be with his owner and is a bit possessive (the Chi in him!)  so he’s not for a home with children under  5  or  someone at work for long hours. He travels well and would be a good  ride  along buddy.  —Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.

Charlie – un petit coeur!

ADORABLE – 5 YEARS/ANS  – 8 POUNDS/LIVRES – NICE LITTLE CADILLAC DOG – UN PETIT COEUR – LIKES OTHER DOGS TO PLAY WITH –  ADORE JOUER AVEC DES PETITS TOUTOUS – FOSTER MOM NEEDS TO BE COMMUNICATED WITH IN FRENCH 

Charlie est un petit coeur sur 4 pattes. approximatievent 5 ans, 8 livres, très attachant  enjoué, adore jouer avec des petits toutous. Il a besoin de dormir avec ses maîtres. … il est d’accord pour dormir au pied du lit par contre.  Il est propre à l intérieur mais fait des petits pipi si il est trop content ! !!! Il est très dépendant de ses maîtres il pleur beaucoup si il en manque un ! !! Il a un problème à la colonne et ne peux monter des marches donc il a besoin de rampe pour le lit et le sofa. S’entend bien avec presque tous les chiens qui sont gentils avec lui.  Il marche bien en laisse. Il a un problème de trachée mais surtout si il est en surplus de poids.  Pour le moment il est à un poids santé et on ne detecte pas de problème à ce niveau.  Donc son poids sera à surveiller de près. Il est très jappeux pour tout et rien, donc preferable qu ‘il ne soit pas en appartement. Il est frileux. Charlie serait un petit compagnon tres devoue. Charlie est en famille d’acceuil a Aylmer, Quebec. —-Merci de votre intérêt pour un chien du groupe Minpinerie Rescue.

Heeeeeeeeere’s Charlie! Charlie’s dedicated foster Mom only speaks French (located in Alymer) and she is meticulous with his care and knows his medical condition and temperament and needs. She is quite invested in this little dog as she is the one who rescued him from a shelter and worked out his previous adoption (he was returned because his owner became too ill to care for him, not Charlie’s fault)  and now she wants to make sure this time that his adoption is forever. So in this case, we are hoping for a Francophone adopter to communicate with her very well, or if you are an Anglophone adopter, you need to have a Francophone person communicate with Charlie’s foster Mom in French on the phone and be there physically when you pick up Charlie at time of trial adoption to go over everything (and you can take notes in English about Charlie) (after you have been approved as an adopter of course). Now about Charlie, a little sweetheart on 4 legs. Quiet and nice. About 5 years old, 8 pounds, very endearing and playful, loves to play with little doggies. He needs to sleep with his humans but agrees to sleep at the foot of the bed if necessary. Charlie is clean inside but pees if he is too excited. He is very dependent on his masters and will cry a lot for at least some time if he misses one of them, so an apartment not recommended. He cannot climb stairs so he needs a ramp for the bed and the sofa. Charlie likes a walk and walks well on a leash. Nice thick coat for winter walkies. At the moment he is at a healthy weight and we need to make sure he stays that way as a trachea problem could develop if he gains weight. Charlie would be a lovely small companion very devoted to you. —Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.

Sassy – sweetheart who would love to be an only dog! Just loves to be with you!

7 YEARS OLD, ABOUT 12 POUNDS – LOVES CUDDLING AND YOUR COMPANY ABOVE ALL – SO MUCH LOVE TO GIVE – LOVES WALKS – WOULD DO WELL WITH NO OTHER DOG OR ANOTHER CALM DOG 

Dear Sassy was with Minpinerie before – she was adopted and very much loved and lived with another little dog (male chi) to whom she bonded really well, they used to curl up together at night, but the owner got quite ill and could not take care of her anymore, so she was surrendered so we could find her a home where another loving person can open their heart and their home to her. She is a puppy mill survivor, she cannot stand to be contained, so she should not be crated. She loves to be with her people. Miss Sassy is a lovely little 7 year-old MinPin. She has had a tough life, and she so much love to give and wants nothing more than to be with her human and to be snuggled and loved back. Walks are one of her favourite things to do and she is pretty good on leash. She has lots of energy and she might not come back in an off-leash situation. Sassy loves to sleep under blankets as a true Minpin does but she has also learned to enjoy curling up in a bed in front of the fireplace. Wants to have a sweater on before she goes outside to do her business, especially once it gets dark.  She has had a hernia fixed near her bladder and she is now starting to learn that she can hold her urine more easily than before and with frequent trips outside, housetraining is pretty much good again. Her foster Mom lets her outside frequently and working on learning the words “Sassy go pee”. One thing that Sassy doesn’t like is to be closed in; she has spent too many years trapped in a cage and it causes her a lot of stress. There are not many teeth left in her mouth but she does deal with a few kibble with her soft food at meal time. She has some insecurity about food, and will steal treats if she can get away with it and has a bit of food aggression, but it is easily dealt with.  Her foster Mom says “I think that Sassy could be an only dog as long as her person is with her for most of the day.  She might benefit from being with a calmer, older dog or someone her own age. She is a wonderful little dog with tons of love and laughter to provide anyone willing to finish her housetraining.”———Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog.

FOSTER PARENTS NEEDED

Hello! Would you like to foster a dog in need? Our rescue cannot save dogs that have been abandoned or rescued from a shelter or puppy mill unless we have foster homes with loving folk like you to help prepare dogs for their forever homes. Minpinerie is a non-profit Ottawa-based organization made up of dedicated dog-loving volunteers who rescue and foster miniature pinschers that have been surrendered by their owners, willingly released by puppy mills or breeders, or abandoned in shelters. If you have the room in your home and your heart, (or know of someone who might) please let us know by filling out the application online and help us out by giving one of these sweeties a loving temporary place to stay on their journey to their forever home. You can find out more about a dog that might fit your family and lifestyle by calling or writing to Louise at loulouonline@rogers.com or filling in the volunteer application.
